Bonjour,

and we may face a similar problem with *transliteration* : how to encode 
the same, say, <unititle> in the same file, both in original language 
(Thai, Arab...) and in another writing system (Latin) ?
In this case, both written forms should be displayed.

Regards,
Y. Nicolas (Calames - www.calames.abes.fr )
